The winery is at Limney Farm, an old dairy farm which is now completely solar powered. The focus in on caring for the soil in the vineyard, producing healthy grapes and protecting the surrounding wildlife & woodland. In the winery Will prefers a careful, natural approach - wild yeast fermentation, no filtering and no fining agents used. The wines are fermented in stainless steel & large oak foudres.
